  • Unearthing the fossilized Andromeda galaxy: a spectroscopic pilot survey of M31 giants

    Galaxy evolution models are strongly underpinned by anchoring constraints made locally in the Milky Way. In this proposal, we aim to perform a pilot study toward providing a secondary local anchor in the form of a detailed mapping in element abundances of the stellar populations of the Andromeda galaxy, M31. Primarily, we will use NIRSpec

  • Bar pattern speeds in CALIFA galaxies: ultrafast bars or too long bars?

    More than 10% of the barred galaxies with a direct measurement of bar pattern speed host a bar rotating extremely fast. These bars are generally defined as 'ultrafast'. We selected the ultrafast bars observed in CALIFA and investigated if the bar rotation rates were correctly determined. We tested the measurement of bar pattern speed obtained with

  • IMF variations in the Fornax cluster

    The stellar initial mass function (IMF) is a fundamental ingredient in stellar population synthesis models and for decades it was considered to be universal. However, the universality of the IMF has been recently challenged by detailed stellar population modeling of massive early-type galaxies. I this talk I will present our recent efforts within
